Hair treatment, moisturising cream, mask or peeling – these are the ways in which you can use coconut oil. This extremely valuable liquid can replace cosmetics that you have been using up till now; it’ll take care of the scalp and upgrade make-up you apply. Give it a try!
Coconut oil serves well as a natural hair conditioning substance. Just apply it to the scalp and hair (don’t forget to apply an additional coat to the hair ends), and let it sit for 15 minutes. Once quarter of an hour passes, wash the hair and set a hairdo. What’s interesting, coconut oil is able to remove dandruff and ease scalp irritations. Apply a small amount of this natural product and massage it delicately at the hair roots. Let the oil sit a few minutes. After that, shampoo the hair and blow-dry the strands. Moreover, coconut oil will help you discipline the strands, smooth frizzy hair and add a little bit of shine to the hair. To obtain this effect, rub the cosmetic starting from the mid-lengths heading downwards.
What might be surprising, coconut oil can be also applied instead of as a shave balm. Before you use a disposable razor, coat the skin with the oil and let it get absorbed. Moreover, if the skin of your lips or face is dehydrated, then instead of regular creams, treat it with coconut oil. This cosmetic has oiling, smoothing and protective features. If your make-up removing lotion has just finished, again reach for coconut oil. Put just a few drops of the product onto a cotton pad and delicately wipe your face with it. The best thing about coconut oil is that it’s able to highlight complexion the same way cosmetics designed for this purpose do.
Simple beauty hacks with coconut oil
There are plenty of cosmetic recipes with coconut oil. If you want to prepare a face peeling, mix a half of a glass of coconut oil with a glassful of brown sugar. Warm it up, cool down and mix with a few drops of an essential oil. And if you would like to prepare your own homemade face mask, reach for coconut oil too. Mix one tablespoon of honey with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Let the mixture sit on your face for 20 minutes and then rinse it with lukewarm water. The effect? Fresh, clean and neat face skin.
